Beautifully curated, handmade artisan products for gifts or the home
Lucy Simon's Bath shop is a wonder to behold. Specialising in artisan homewares and fresh and dried floristry, Lucy also runs seasonal workshops from her studio beneath the shop.
Her beautiful little shop is situated in the heart of the historic quarter of Bath on Bartlett Street. Take a wander up this cobbled street to her store where she sells a carefully curated selection of mostly handmade products, centred around nature-inspired illustrative design, across homewares and stationery.
Working closely with suppliers who are small businesses themselves, Lucy connects with local makers, illustrators, ceramicists, artists and creatives located within a few hours of Bath, plus a few French brands unique to Bath.
A visit to her shop includes an introduction to her 'scent studio' where she showcases her very own candle brand, Lucy Simon candles. She makes these candles in store using soy wax and botanical oils for a pure, even burn. Alongside the candles and perfumes, Article specialises in locally-grown, rarer varieties of plants and scented flowers and are an official stockist of David Austin roses, selling hand-tied bouquets, posies and wedding flowers in their natural, garden style. Choose a fresh bouquet or select stems from cut flower buckets which often decorate the shop exterior, many of the flowers are supplied same day from local growers for a feel of the local floral area in your home.
"We think it's very important to showcase a selection of the many talented illustrators and designers in the UK. it's such a wonderful moment to open a beautiful and unusual card and our customers appreciate finding 'different' cards at Article whilst on that delicate mission of seeking the right card for a particular person.."
